**Be warned food lovers**, the first day of this "Miracle" is BRUTAL! The Hollywood 48 Hour Miracle is based on the miracle of Fasting, you know, as in NOT eating what you want to eat, but if you can do it, you'll certainly be rewarded in the end with some quick and sustainable weight loss.
The bottle includes 8 servings of a concentrate. You mix 4 oz of this liquid with 4 oz of water and sip it for 4 hours, 4 times during the day (that's during 16 hours per day for those who are counting). Also, you're supposed to drink 8 glasses of water throughout the day. It tastes pretty good, like a tangy fruit juice, so that's not too bad, but having to overcome the desire to fulfill not just the hunger, but the habits one creates around eating and drinking that first day was brutally difficult (remember you can't eat or drink anything but this and water). The first day in particular was hard to overcome, but the second day was much more bearable. By the end, I felt much better and improved some of my food habits in the process.
I tried to follow instructions to the letter, but it was a bit difficult to sip each glass throughout each of the 4 hours during a busy day, so sometimes I would finish it quicker, and other times slower. I'd include the glasses of water in-between to try to control the hunger with it (the hunger still came, but I thought it helped). By the end of the first day, even with the almost unbearable desire for normal food, soft drinks, etc., I already felt better, like I had lost some of my gut. This was the reward that would push me through to the end. After two days, I had lost 8 pounds. I went from 197 to 189, and almost a week later, the weight is still off.
Pros: Easy to prepare. No complications. Tasty. 8 pound loss. Weight still off a week later.
Cons: Hunger. Hunger, and did I mention...Hunger. Requires heavy will power, especially during the first 24 hours.
Conclusion: If you want to lose a quick 8 pounds or want to reach a desired weight, the 48 Hour Miracle Diet definitely works, as long as you have the will power to surpass the first 24 hours of deep desire to indulge in food and previously established habits. It worked for me, so I definitely recommend it.
